Square Enix launches website to play the original Densha de GO!! via smartphone browser

Plus, a Densha de GO!! Hashirou Yamanote Sen comparison video.

Densha de GO!!

Square Enix has launched a train operator experience website where you can play the original Densha de GO! released for PlayStation in 1997 via your smartphone browser in promotion of the newly announced Densha de GO!! Hashirou Yamanote Sen. It requires iOS 12 or higher on iOS devices and Android 8 or higher on Android devices, and is compatible with Safari and Google Chrome browsers.

By accessing the train operator experience website via your smartphone, you can operate trains in three sections of the JR Yamanote Line—“Shibuya to Ebisu,” “Ebisu to Meguro,” and “Meguro to Gotanda”—while experiencing the nostalgic sounds of the original game. Aim for a high score by smoothly stopping the train at each station’s stopping point and then share your results on Twitter.

The website also features a video comparing the original Densha de GO! with the upcoming Densha de GO!! Hashirou Yamanote Sen.

Densha de GO!! Hashirou Yamanote Sen is due out for PlayStation 4 on December 3 in Japan, and for Switch at a later date. Read more about the game here.
